Dead Man Gravel Looks For Pinnacle Placement on 2021 Gravel Circuit
Dead Man Gravel believes that more people should be brought into the sport, not excluded. That includes womxn, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+ and differently abled athletes. To help achieve this, Dead Man Gravel is partnering with organizations including Ride for Racial Justice and Sharktooth Cycling. These two nonprofits are doing incredible work in bringing new, and typically disadvantaged, athletes into the sport by helping to increase awareness and reduce barriers to entry. RagTag Outdoors was also brought on to help shape the inclusivity, diversity and environmental stewardship initiatives. Dead Man Gravel’s diverse board of advisors is also working to creatively decrease barriers and increase access to all riders.
“I’m so excited to be able to share all that Nederland and the Peak to Peak area has to offer, especially when it comes to having fun riding bikes on our amazing network of gravel roads,” said Gavin Coombs, founder of Dead Man Gravel. “This is going to be a fantastic event that hopefully helps continue to move the needle for increasing diversity and inclusivity in cycling, and giving people another much needed summer gravel race event outside of Boulder.” A former professional runner, Coombs is also the founder of Peak to Peak Endurance, an event management company that is putting on Dead Man Gravel as well as hosting retreat weekends and endurance coaching.
